From the show:
Not to be confused with, and very much unlike The Emoji Movie, Emojiland is an electric ensemble piece about a diverse community of archetypes who take one another at face value: a smiling face dealing with depression; a princess who doesn’t want a prince; a skull dying for deletion; a nerd face too smart for his own good; a face with sunglasses who can’t see past his own reflection; and a police officer and construction worker who just want to work together. When a software update threatens to destroy life as they know it, Emojiland faces the most fundamental questions a society – and a heart – can face: Who are we? And who matters?
See it if If you are into emojis, if you like energetic shows with no significant plot.
Don't see it if If you do not know most emojis past a smiley face, if extreme energy bothers you or if you prefer a strong plot.
See it if you can imagine that a story about emojis in your phone makes for great theatre.
Don't see it if you don't like cliched, meta shows. We couldn't stop [insert face palm emoji here] throughout.
See it if You want to see something different, with strong performances and fun costumes and sets.
Don't see it if You don’t like silly musicals, or don’t own an iPhone with emojis!
See it if you want to see some amazing talent giving their all to sing some... very mediocre songs.
Don't see it if you want a real 'musical' experience. This felt cheesy, dated, and cheap already. Not sure who the audience for this really is...
See it if A few good songs and some good singing but that's about it. Creative and quirky
Don't see it if Made something out of nothing. Have potential but end up baffling. Not much artistic value. Don't understand why NY Times gave critic's pick
See it if you are a young person who enjoys great staging, an energetic cast, great singing/dancing, funny emojo characters, and lighthearted humor.
Don't see it if you are looking for a substantive plot or more than just campy silliness apparently geared to a younger audience.
See it if you want to see the big names (Margherita, Crumm, Steele, Abud, Lamon) up close or a cool set
Don't see it if you want to see anything profound or want to leave with any song in your head...nothing special
See it if You like juvenile very broad banal comedic dialogue with unmemorable songs peppered with simple lyrics.
Don't see it if You like your shows with at least a smidge of adult sophistication or intelligence. If you are easily bored then stay away.
See it if ... stellar performances from a hard-working cast, a very few decent songs and jokes, energetic, campy, mindless, second-rate silliness.
Don't see it if Tacky, earnest college attempt, "Gee, emoji's, let's make a musical!" NY Times liked it, but they didn't have to pay for their ticket.
See it if you spend more time looking at your phone than talking to people and love to go to bad pop concerts and like mindless fluff
Don't see it if you want to see a great musical with great singing, dancing or music...or if you are annoyed by young pop concerts.
See it if You are a fan of any of the actors in the show the show has some problems with the plot some songs are really good and some bad
Don't see it if I feel the show doesn’t know who to aim towards either adults or kids or both the show feels all over the place and takes awhile to getgoing
See it if You want to watch the talented cast embarrassingly perform this all-over-the-place show. Lesli M is a highlight.
Don't see it if The word 'emoji' already makes you cringe. If you take yourself too seriously. This is exactly what you think it'll be.
See it if you appreciate talented performances, especially singing, in a vehicle that doesn't match up to their talents; you enjoy goofiness.
Don't see it if campy theatre is not your taste and you are not interested in emojis. You seek a plot where you care about the characters and the outcome.
See it if you are open to shows that are purposefully cliche. It's a funny take on a lot of topics with some good songs mixed in.
Don't see it if you want an efficient story-line; the show could easily be cut down by about 45 minutes.
See it if you have a teenager at home that is engrossed with their phone. also see if you want a hearty laugh!
Don't see it if you're looking for a show with a lot of substance. the show reminded me of spongebob the musical, which i loved, but avoid if that's for you
See it if You love the names attached to the show. Everyone in it seemed to be enjoying what they were doing. The singing was mostly phenomenal.
Don't see it if You don't want to see Ann Harada sing about poop for 3 excruciating minutes. If you like good shows with substance, sit this one out.
